Thompson joins Blue Jays
The Blue Jays signed reliever Rich Thompson to a minor league deal Tuesday. Thompson spent parts of six seasons with the Angels until he was waived last April. In 2012, he appeared in two games with the Angels and one game with the Athletics, spending the rest of the season with Triple-A Sacramento, where he went 4-2 with a 3.34 ERA.
